Charbel Samuel AounFollow Artist
Charbel Samuel Aoun is an artist of Lebanese origin born in 1980 in Fanar/ Mount Lebanon, he lives and works currently between Beirut and Paris.
An architect by training, he left architectural firms and planted a forest in search of natural experiences with the spatial ingredients. In his work the medium acts as a multisensory trigger, inviting to a dialogue between the rational and the emotional, what he calls traces of forgotten languages.
Between 2007 and 2017, his work underwent a significant change: his painting turned to plant materials seeking the space of a skin. This research resonated spatially with several installations exploring dialogues between the human, the medium, and social realities.
Between 2017 and 2020, he developed a design master's program, teaching the dynamics of the social space in critical areas of Beirut, and seeking the form of intervention as an organic entity in dialogue with different layers of a street life.
The last years his work turned to be site-specific, a natural discussion with the social space.
